Oh Chart, you are so sweet! I've been taking a break from writing as I always seem to write the same stuff and I was away all weekend. So in a nutshell>>> My boss sucks, I miss my wife> everything hurts and I'm tired as hell! Thats about it except I had a wonderful 3 day weekend with my wife. Driving up there and and back in the last two weekends, I've driven over 1,000miles in the pouring rain and that does not include the 90 miles a day back and fourth from work in the rain every day! We have a rain gauge up there in the country and it said we had 16" over th last 3 days! Yesterday I drove through two tornado warnings on my way south, I didn't realize it till I got back and turned on the news! I never stop in the rain but I literally couldn't see 10' in front of my car! When I pulled over w/ my flashers on, I was afraid the dumbies still driving were going to rear-end me. The car was shaking and rocking from the wing that they said was over 70mph on the news> That's hurricane speed!
We did take the boat out into the Gulf of Mexico Sunday A.M. before the storms came through. We spent 2 hours looking for fish and finally found a big school of sea trout as it was getting risky to stay. We caught enough for dinner and scooted out just in time! Man it's hard to leave when your getting bites on every cast! The trout have to be 15" to keep and I caught about a dozen 13-14 inchers in about ten minutes. My wife did almost the same. We took home 4 between 16" & 19" which was plenty. They are really good eating when fresh, they loose alot of taste after freezing. We got the boat up on the trailer, tied down and unloaded 5 minutes before the downpour! One good thing is the boat got a good washing on the drive home! I so didn't want to come back south to go to that hellhole where I work! I just don't think I can do it much longer. My whole body hurt so bad when the alarm went off at 4:00am and my meds just didn't make a dent today. My neck, lower back and right knee were just throbbing with every heart beat but I'm sure you know how that feels. So that's about all the happenings in Peteworld, how are you feeling? I pray you are doing better!
Thanks so much for thinking about me, you are an ANGEL!!!
Big soft gentle HUGZ are coming at you!
Your Loyal Friend,

You know I love you guys. I'll look for you in chat Char.

Chart,
I forgot to ask, have those darn allergies let up at all? I haven't read any posts yet and you probably updated everyone by now. I'll check there to see if you are feeling better yet> I sure hope so. Thats one thing I've never had but my oldest son has them bad and I always felt guilty living in Florida with all the pollins and tropical crap in the air. He used to get vilently ill every winter when the sugar cane growers to the west of us burn the cane before harvesting it. In the winter the cold fronts always come from the northwest and would blow all that smoke down here where we live. Some people, especially old could not even go out of their airconditioned houses when that awful sweet smoke would blow in. But Big Sugar owns south Fla. and they do what they want including poluting the Everglades and get away with it! Crooked polititians in cahoots w/ big sugar, it's a sin! But so is everything else, I better not get political here, It makes me so mad it's not healthy> talk about raising my blood presure! Sorry!!!
Anyway, I must go read some posts now!
Thanks again Linda & Chart!!!

Pete,
So glad to hear from you! I've seen weather reports about the flooding down there around Daytona, I think. I'm sure glad you're safe!

A question for you: is your pain better when you're up north with your wife? My guess is yes, and I'm glad maybe you're starting to listen to your body about directing your future!

Hugs,

PaLady

Hi Pete,

I'm glad you were able to enjoy a long weekend with your wife, despite the rain. I'm happy you made it home safe & sound. Driving in rain like that, especially on the highway, is not fun at all! I hope you are doing well today.

hugs,
Skeye

PA, Your right about my pain when I'm up in the country with my wife, It sure takes my mind off the pain more than when I'm back here alone. My pets help alot too! You're always right!!!
Chart, I wrote on your post, I don't know what to add here except, you know here in the H.W.C.P family, we will always have your back!!! We love you and will miss you!!!
Skeye, I was thinking about you again today, then I jumped into cyberworld and there you were posting to me>>> AGAIN!! There is something cosmic going on here??? I heard a commercial for the Eye Institute at University of Miami and how they are listed as the top plase for eyes in the world by US News & World Report. I heard it while I was on hold on the phone waiting to talk to my doctor! Maybe you can check it out in Google. It had a name, I can't remember but I'm sure you could find it under U of M Health Care. Maybe it's worth a shot??? Anyway, thanks for the kind words as always! It's still raining here! All day and is supposed to all night and tomorrow> YIKES!!!
I hope all of Y'all get a good night sleep w/ sweet dreams and no *^*)(&#@!! Pain!!!
Your Brother,
Pete

Hey Pete,

That's funny that you were thinking about me while I was writing to you! It is very strange how often my mother & I think the same things at the same time (for example, we are both trying to call each other at the same time). We are a lot alike.

I actually did know about the Eye Institute at the University of Miami. I don't remember the name either. (okay, I just looked it up, it is the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute). A year or so ago I spent time looking at all of the hospitals ranked as "top hospitals for ophthalmology" by the US News & World Report, and as you said, the hospital in Miami is #1. I've seriously thought about going to the Will's Eye Institute, which is Philadelphia (ranked #3), or the Mass Ear & Eye Infirmary (ranked #4, and the closest to where I live). The problem is, when I look at these places & look at all the profiles of the docs, I just don't know who to go to! I need to see a neuroophthalmologist that is also well versed in muscles, and a lot of them just specialize in retinal problems (which is just about the only area which I haven't had problems). I've asked my ophthalmologist a million times for a name of someone else I could go to see, but even he doesn't know. I've been to Columbia in NYC, and I won't even go into how horrible of an experience I had. That was the first neuroophthalmologist I saw. Then I went through another one, before getting to the one I see now. But I am really not happy with him either (he has NO bedside manner, doesn't let you ask questions, doesn't explain things well, and doesn't take risks/theorize), but he is supposedly very good. I've got some things going at the moment, but you never know, if we still don't figure things out, I might end up there at some point.

I am going to see a chinese herbalist on Friday with my acupuncturist. I guess they have known each other for a long time & this guy is one of the most influential figures in Chinese medicine in the US. Then I am seeing a craniosacral osteopath and a rheumatologist next month. And I've got a few other things lined up as well. Busy busy! I feel like I practically live in a doctor's office... I'm sure you know the feeling.

Thanks for reminding me of U of M!

Pete, I am glad you got to spend the weekend with your wife again. And I am glad your pain is better there. All the wind and rain sound horrible. I am really glad you made it home safely. It is dangerous to be driving in conditions such as that. I am sorry your pain is increasing. I do wish for you a low pain day. Take is as easy as you can. And take care of yourself. We are all pulling for you!!!
